An Ode to My Sisters

 



An Ode to My Sisters
I have been nurtured and thrived
In the company of Black women
Comforted and survived
In the company of Black women
Encouraged
Taught
Cried
In the company of Black women
Wrapped tightly in their strong arms
When I was falling apart
In the company of Black women
Understood without explaining
Prayed for without asking
Grown
Fellowshipped
Basking
In the company of Black women
